Paternoster Lifts: Dangerous, Obsolete and Quite Fun (including over the top!)

http://tomscott.com – http://twitter.com/tomscott – There aren’t many paternoster lifts left in the world: they’re inaccessible, tough to maintain and a bit more dangerous than a regular lift. But some of them still exist: so if you’re ever nearby, do stop by the University of Sheffield’s Arts Tower and have a ride up and down. Just don’t go over the top.

Thanks to Chris Dymond, who was my camera operator for this trip to Sheffield!
